Campus Europae was designed with the ambition of greatly improving the European educational landscape.

We believe that students need to be mobile in order to develop a practical understanding of different European cultures and mindsets, so future generations can embrace the continent’s unity in diversity.

The best thing about Campus Europae was to grow more and more European, not being only Finnish.

Campus Europae (CE) was established as a laboratory for student mobility, developing new concepts and solutions that enhance the quality and the experience of studying abroad.

academic staff


students per year


ex-ante course

CE Movers benefited from:

Campus Europae had an individualised quality assurance system that ensured the automatic recognition of the credits earned abroad.

The CE-Certificate recognized outstanding exchange students who have been academically successful and have a sound knowledge of the language and culture of their host country.

Campus Europae supported an independent student organisation which had a voice and a vote in every decision-making body of the organisation.

Living abroad, meeting new people, getting to know other cultures, studying languages, being responsible for myself, travelling around Europe, being proud to show my friends the cultural heritage of my country while destroying prevailing stereotypes, getting working experience in a foreign country, surviving in completely different system of education, drinking Riesling, and falling in love.

Anna Bobyleva, CE-Mover at the University of Hamburg


Students who wished to become CE-Movers contacted the international relations office of their university/faculty. The administrative workflow and financial support students received was identical to that of the Erasmus+ programme.

My exchange year was an unforgettable and valuable experience in my life. Everything was great, and now I would do everything to go abroad for a second year.
